K.I.H. Mingoti Poague MSc (Kasandra)

PhD Candidate

About Me

I am originally from Brazil, where I got my bachelor's degree in Environmental Engineering and my master's degree in Sanitation, Environment and Water Resources from the Federal University of Minas Gerais. I have been working with research for the past seven years on water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH). During my bachelor's I worked with WASH from the social perspective focusing on minorities living in vulnerable situations. In my master's I had the chance to work in the environmental health field, exploring the links between WASH and neglected tropical diseases (more specifically, soil-transmitted helminthiasis and schistosomiasis mansoni). Now, as part of the Geohealth team in the EOS department, my PhD focuses on WASH in schools and COVID-19. I'm always working towards my career goals as a researcher whose work can significantly contribute to reducing inequality and health disparities.
